What is Mesh Free Repair?
Mesh free repair, also known as Desarda repair, uses a strip of tendon or aponeurosis taken from the outer layer of the three muscle layers of the patient’s abdominal wall. The patient’s own tissue is then used to repair the inguinal canal.
Who is suitable for Mesh Free Repair?
Not all patients or hernias are suitable for this method. Patients with large or long-standing hernias with some loss of tissue or scar tissue are usually not able to be repaired without mesh. Elderly patients with poor tissue quality may also not be suitable.
Your surgeon will therefore be able to assess, guide and recommend the appropriate treatment method for your personal case.
